Report: Bills surprisingly cut RB Jonathan Williams

By Jesse Reed

The Buffalo Bills have made their fair share of puzzling moves of late, the most recent being they released Jonathan Williams, per a report.

It’s a very surprising move. Williams was drafted last year out of Arkansas and appeared to be a promising talent. He rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown as a rookie.

At one point, Williams was in some trouble when he was arrested for DUI. However, he was ultimately cleared of charges, avoided any legal ramifications whatsoever and was not suspended by the NFL.

This release also reportedly has nothing to do with any injury or upcoming suspension that has yet to be announced.

It’s unclear just what Buffalo is thinking here. Williams was the team’s second-best running back after Mike Gillislee landed in New England this offseason. Suddenly, an offense that was already in a heap of trouble lost another talented player.
